    Worship Leader - Dave Hassell Band

    "My story may have led me to share the stage with great musicians, release albums, and travel around with a band, but the only reason that I've accomplished anything that even resembles success in my life is because God has been very gracious to me.

    Morning Worship Pastor - Blake White

    Blake was born and raised near Abilene, TX and attended Angelo State, Southern Seminary, and Southwestern Seminary. Jesus saved him during his freshman year of college and he has been wrecked ever since. He joined the staff at the Ridge in March of 2015 and is thrilled to be a part of what God is doing through the Ridge in Dripping Springs. Blake stalked his wife in college, but when it is successful we call it pursuit. He and lovely Alicia have four kiddos: Josiah, Asher, Karis, and Knox. He enjoys hanging with the family, has written ten theology books, loves to read, and occasionally playing basketball.

  • Evening Worship Pastor - Jared C. Wilson

    Evening Worship Pastor - Jared C. Wilson

    Jared C. Wilson is the Director of Content Strategy for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Managing Editor of For The Church, Midwestern's site for gospel-centered resources. Jared is not a catalytic "agent of change" or a visionary anything. He is a failed church planter and once made a mess of his marriage. He likes food too much and worries way too much about what people think, and he's definitely not all that he's cracked up to be. After 20 years of ministry, he's mainly learned that he's kind of a nincompoop. But he knows Jesus loves him.
